Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Calgary Pending Demolition of McHugh House

LOGO CentennialFor a numbers of years now the Calgary Catholic Diocese has been running our Elizabeth House program at what used to be known as “McHugh House. Elizabeth House – a haven for young women who are pregnant with nowhere else to go – began as a partnership with the Sisters of Charity of St. Louis in 1996.  The program puts love and justice into action by wrapping these women in the warm environment of family.  The physical, emotional and spiritual needs of these young mothers are met through guidance, counselling, education and referrals to services in the community. They are learning how to raise a healthy family of their own. With the passage of time we have had to confront several facilities issues and have utilized the professional facilities assessment services of Apache Consulting, Wiebe Forest Engineering, Chinook Environment, and International Asbestos Testing Laboratories. Based on the results and our concern for the health and safety of the moms and babies, we have determined that we needed immediate action to relocate Elizabeth House, and that the repairs and general maintenance of “McHugh House” were financially prohibitive, and the decision was taken to demolish the building asap.
